Happy Chinese New Year!A few scenes from our new year's eve celebrations.
Those oversized "grapefruits" are pomelos, largest of the citrus fruits, native to SouthEast Asia. And yes, we brought one home. We also brought home a couple of the Paperwhite (aka Narcissus) bulbs you see in the adjacent picture, to sprout indoors as the winter wanes into spring.
Daddy and Q inspecting the New Year's market at the Far East Center.
Paperwhites and bamboo shoots.
Firecrackers and coconut juice.
A flowering lucky tree.
Opening her first red envelope.
Q is still working on her chopstick technique, but she is nothing if not motivated. Since the Far East center was mobbed, we resorted to our newest local Pho restaurant for lunch. Q is a big fan of Pho.
We ordered several long noodle dishes for long life. My beef noodle bowl was superb, and I inhaled every last bite. Q made good headway with the Pho.
